Quarterly Commentary - Q1 2016


The building pressure in U.S. and global equities in late 2015 led to a broad-based sell-off in January and February before a March rally.

The Fund underperformed its benchmarks.

We foresee continued volatility, which underscores the importance of finding select companies with truly sustainable competitive advantages.
